Red Bull Music Academy will be setting up camp at North Byron Parklands with its very own stage at the 2013 edition of Splendour In The Grass. Each day of the festival will showcase family and friends from midday until 2am alongside some of Australia’s finest beat peddlers.
On Friday the RBMA Stage kicks off in style as Detroit techno don Rick Wilhite shares the headline slot with Academy graduate Onra, with local support from Future Classic DJs, Otologic DJs, Mitzi DJs, Charles Murdoch, Hayden James, Andy Webb, Ben Fester and Modern Fairytale.
Kiwi future soul songstress Ladi6 and Platinum Pied Pipers producer Waajeed will be joined on Saturday by Australia’s Academy grads Julien Love, Kano and Canyons of DFA fame, plus SilentJay, Galapagoose, Oisima, Perplex, JPS and Jamie Bennett.
Academy team member James Pants will throw down before house head Maurice Fulton closes the party on Sunday with Levins, Cliques, Cassius Select, Ariane, Zanzibar Chanel, Michael Ozone, Pelvis, Holy Balm, Shantan Wantan Ichiban, Toni Toni Lee and GoodGod Sound Unlimited repping for Sydney’s smallest superclub.
